Yampa/White/Green River Flow Survey - Please take this survey!

Greetings Paddler,

As the recreational representative for the Yampa/White/Green Roundtable, I'm forwarding everyone this link to a flow survey we have partnered with American Whitewater to do in our basin.

Our goal is to have as many respondents to the survey which evaluates flow levels and your paddling experience on many reaches of river in the Yampa/White/Green Basin. We will be incorporating this into our Phase II of the Non-Consumptive Needs Assessment where we are modeling flows for Environmental and Recreational attributes.

This is a similar survey that you may have done for the Upper Colorado River and their wild & scenic review, so you may be familiar with how the survey flows.

Please, we have a just over a month to do this (early April), so if you and as many paddlers who are familiar with these river sections review and take the survey, it would be very helful.

Yampa River Flow Survey 2011

Thank you for helping with this effort and spreading the word to all your paddling friends.

Yes please bump this to the top as we have only 2 more days to make this happen. It could be extended but probably not.

If you haven't already, you must do this survey. It takes 15-30 min depending on how many of these reaches of river you have paddled and your thoughts about flow levels related to your recreational experience.

Once again, this is a joint effort by the Yampa/White/Green basin roundtable and American Whitewater to evaluate flows and our recreational experience that we have on the river, as it is related to CFS. All of the data for this recreational survey comes from you. So please do this and pass it on to your friends now.

If you have ever paddled Yampa Canyon, Cross Mountain, Gates of Ladore, do this survey now!

If you have ever kayaked Fish Creek or the Steamboat town run, do this survey now!

If you know the White River area or know people who have done these stretches of river, including kayaking in the upper reaches of the White River, do this SURVERY now!

Those who have paddled the Elk River, Willow Creek, Slater Creek or Mad Creek, do this survey now!

If you do take on the survey, please do it in a trustworthy and honest way. Thanks.

And again, send this with urgency to all your friends.
